Position Available: Event Promoter & Organizer Who Loves Herbalism & Homesteading.

Are you the kind of person who loves to throw totally awesome parties?  Are you such a natural born networker that you’ve signed up new clients while waiting in line for tickets at the fair?  The Grow Network Inc. (http://thegrownetwork.com) is looking for a dynamic A+ player to join our team.  Your objective with this position will be to successfully promote and organize our two annual online Summits – the “Home Grown Food Summit” and the “Home Medicine Summit”.

TGN is currently composed of about 150,000 members and we are scaling up our systems to handle 2 million.

Our company culture is a team of rugged adventurers, out to make a  difference in the world.  We are a distributed company with our team members spread throughout the US (most of us are based in Texas).  Those with a life-attitude of being on an expedition in the back-country will like working in this environment.  This is a work from home position where you determine your own hours and have your own equipment.

You are a person who knows you can work anywhere, but choose to work with us.

 

Skills and Attributes Needed

  • A passion for homegrown food and good health (you have a garden, and/or livestock, and you are growing some of your own food in some way).
  • 5+ years experience promoting large complex events (sourcing talent, getting sponsors, making it profitable, arranging production schedules, and managing all the zillion details).
  • Excellent verbal, written, and interpersonal communication skills. You love engaging with people especially via phone, email, and FB.
  • Persistence with follow-up (you know that it takes at least 15 interactions for an outcome and this doesn’t phase you at all).
  • You are detail oriented and have an instinct for organizing and categorizing with simple clarity.  You are a fanatic with relationship tracking and file naming.
  • Computer and internet savvy; you easily pick up new software and can get programs to communicate with each other.  You are familiar with marketing automation email software such as OntraPort, relationship tracking CRM such as HighRise, and familiar with WordPress.
  • You have a competitive entrepreneurial streak.  Each Summit must have 35+ amazing presentations, add 10k+ new members to the network, and gross >$250k.
  • You are comfortable working on a distributed team and you have a good sense of humor.
  • Intermediate skill with Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)


Compensation and Benefits

Starting at $5,000/month plus bonuses, the potential for more is huge.

This a full-time, work-from-home (or anywhere), contract position where you determine your own hours, and complete work using your own equipment.  Note, there are no health benefits with this position (although we are considering support for alternatives).

Please note that we are looking for a full-time, long-term committed teammate and friend who wants to be part of our innovative and growing organization for many years to come.

Other benefits of working at The Grow Network include:

    This sounds fabulous! I would love this! Spring is just starting here on Prince Edward Island, one of my favorite times of the year. I will soon be getting underway in my planting and forging for the wild spring flowers and herbs that grow here. I will include my resume but I didn’t ever work in this field that I could include with a resume. Right now I am retired and enjoying it immensely! This would be absolutely the perfect job for me, I am very much computer literate, and even taught a course at one of the schools a few years back.
